Some believe we are made of stardust. Others believe we are souls captured in a divinely crafted body. Either way, many of us live unfulfilling lives. I believe this happens when we allow society to dictate our priorities and measures of success. This is where the rat in a wheel feeling comes from.
Perhaps we should think about what we need to be happy. This is where our “stardust souls” come in. Ancient religions spoke of people having a divine purpose. The Wanderlores believe everyone has a “birth mission” that defines what their life should be. A true birth mission isn’t the one that society says you should have. Instead, it has to do with the talents, abilities and interests each of us is born with, coupled with the needs of the world we are born into.
Everyone has a birth mission. Everyone has a piece of the Magic inside. This is the piece that connects us to the universe and to the planet on which we live. This connection is awakened many times by nature, which can be found not only in awesome places like forests, deserts, shores, and parks, but also in one’s own backyard.
This is where other stardust souls already exist in the form of trees, plants and creatures. Observing these makes us realize that we’re not alone in the world, and, if we really take the time to know them, they just might share some of their secrets for successful living in a very complex web of life.
